Why pet a flawy base? I don't know.
Just try it sometimes, cause it feels good. Doing
speed paints and unfinished ones all the time is boring for me,
I just have the urge to go all the way sometimes. Huh, but that's just me.
Either way, you do your sketches and paintings till you fell good, no more
no less. Drawing and painting should be fun. As soon as it starts to get some
pressure on you, leave it. You did better with the sharpness on the colored girls's face
in #720. Your improvements are clearly seen on this painting. Very good job.
Your pencil faces are getting better also and you are becoming more original.
The cup drawing from life is a bit worse now, but just because the too dark
shadow underneath the cup. I think that the earlier version was just a bit better.
But never stop experimenting, cause it will make you learn a lot of new things.
Girls face in #716 is pretty much ok, but you should watch for the distance
between the eyes, cause this is not a caricature. I got a
feeling that this is not a round object, it is rather flat, like a skinned face.
Leatherface took of his victims face, that is a good stuff, haha.
Hands, hands, hands, they look ok, you just keep on doing them, do them
from life, do them from photo references, do them realistic style, do
them comic book style. Huh again, no one said being an artist is easy.
Sorry for my non orthodox, non chronological and chaotic style of reply.
Generally you did a good job, and I am so proud, hardly can wait to see
something new again from you.
